Solange Knowles made an appearance on Fox News Las Vegas to promote her new album “Sol-Angel & The Hadley Street Dreams”. Before the show, she was asked to talk about Jay-Z’s 40/40 Club in Vegas closing down. Solange declined to discuss it. The show got awkward really quick when Solange said, “I have to say that was not a very professional introduction before. Please don’t tie me into family and my brother-in-law’s establishment.” The news anchor, confused, apologized and said she didn’t think they talked about Jay-Z’s club in the intro. A little voice then told Solange, “That wasn’t live, Solange. That wasn’t on TV.”
Owned! The fact that Solange spent the rest of the interview hiding her embarrassment behind a facade of indignation only adds to the hilarity. This would have been gold if the interviewer muttered, “What a fucking bitch,” under her breath and the mic picked it up. Solange might have chocked a bitch. Watch the clip here.
(Update: The station ran a tease piece on the closing of Jay-Z’s 40/40 Club before the interview. The segment had not aired yet, although Solange thought it did. Solange also isn’t a fan of the FOX network, but is content to use them for publicity.)
